    Jan 24, 2022

    A NEW agent has emerged in Team Secret’s ranks, as the team successfully found a new head coach for their upcoming Valorant esports campaign.

    With the departure of Gilbert “Gibo” Sales comes the arrival of Chong Hoc “Fayde” Wah, as announced on the team’s official Facebook page.

    Prior to his arrival to the team, Fayde has been pioneering the coach/analyst role in Southeast Asia, thanks to his stint with Team SMG. He even tried to be an analyst for BOOM Esports at the beginning of 2022, only for him to make the leap to Team Secret.
